  1. Regarding who’s hot and who’s not—does anyone ever question the “guru” Kevin Long. It seems to me the only one prospering under him is Granderson

    • Blaming the hitting coach is just a cop out for the players not performing. These are professional hitters and the hitting coach cannot get up there and hit for them.

      • I agree with that, yet they are their for a reason and I personally like what i have seen of his techniques. Yet low averages, especially with risp and relying on the long ball for most of scoring is alarming at best

  2. Looks like the Yanks might catch a break if Lawrie gets suspended for his actions last night.

  3. george jetson

    They will appeal any suspension so Lawrie will play.

  4. I just saw the Brett Lawrie ejection video. MAN! That umpire just flat out made some horrible calls. But Lawrie handled it inappropriately. So both of them are at fault.
